Deploying Group Policy Preferences

Group Policy preferences do not require you to install any services on servers. Windows Server 2008 includes Group Policy preferences by default as part of the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). Administrators will also be able to configure and deploy Group Policy preferences in a Windows Server 2003 environment by installing the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) on a computer running Windows Vista with SP1. Both RSAT and Windows Vista SP1 will be available in the first quarter of 2008.

Although you don’t have to install any services to create GPOs that contain Group Policy preferences, you must deploy the Group Policy preferences client-side extension (CSE) to any client computer to which you want to deploy preferences. The CSE will be available as a separate download from Microsoft. It supports the following Windows versions:

·         Windows XP with SP2

·         Windows Vista

·         Windows Server 2003 with SP1

Windows Server 2008 already includes the CSE.
